Conversations with Larry: New Balance Indoor Grand Prix, My predictions, was I right?


The 2017 New Balance Indoor Grand Prix was two weeks earlier than in 2016, which was a strange date for the NB Indoor. In 2017, they were back to a rather normal date.

For many of the athletes, a long 2016 meant a long break, and then, long buildup. Most of the distance athletes were starting their racing at the Reggie Lewis Center for 2017. Most of the sprinters were also starting their seasons.
